When the earth is sick and dying,
There will come a tribe of people
From all races
Who will put their faith in deeds,
Not words, and make the planet
Green again.
--Cree Prophecy

Praying for the Earth

Praying for the Earth

Nov 20, 2020-- "The earth needs our prayers more that we know. It needs us to acknowledge its sacred nature, that it is not just something to use and dispose. Many of us know the effectiveness of prayers for others, how healing and help is given, even in the most unexpected ways. There are many ways to pray for the earth. It can be helpful first to acknowledge that it is not unfeeling matter but a living being that has given us life. And then we can sense its suffering: the physical suffering we see in the dying species and polluted waters, the deeper suffering of our collective disregard for its sacred nature. Would we like to be treated just as a physical object to be used and abused? Would we like our sacred nature, our soul, to be denied?" Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee shares more in this moving piece.
